NAME

tpm2_pcrevent(1) - Hashes a file and optionally extends a pcr.

SYNOPSIS

tpm2_pcrevent [OPTIONS] FILE PCR_INDEX

DESCRIPTION

tpm2_pcrevent(1) - Hashes FILE if specified or stdin. It uses all of the hashing algorithms that the TPM supports.

Optionally, if a PCR index is specified, it extends that PCR for all supported algorithms with the hash digest. FILE and _PCR_INDEX_ arguments don't need to come in any particular order.

In either case, it outputs to stdout the hash algorithm used and the digest value, one per line:

alg:digest

Where alg is the algorithm used (like sha1) and digest is the digest resulting from the hash computation of alg on the data.

See sections 23.1 and sections 17 of the TPM2.0 Specification

OPTIONS

These options control extending the pcr:

  • -P, --auth=AUTH:

    Specifies the authorization value for PCR.
